Creating an Action Plan: Small Groups<br /> Identify a school/department/classroom need.<br /> What resources are necessary to meet that need?<br /> What kind of organization/online resource could offer access to these resources?<br /> How could you approach a potential partner to get involved?<br /> How could the partner get involved at the school in a variety of roles?<br /> How would the partner organization benefit from being partnered with your <br /> school?<br /> What would you do to nurture the partnership?<br /> What are the next steps you need to take to establish this relationship?<br />
Sharing Ideas: Large Group Discussion<br /> What is the identified need and how are you going to acquire the resources to <br /> meet it?2. What new resources did you discover either through discussion with others in <br /> your group or online?<br />
